Amazing 10 Year Old Writer/Illustrator

Today I received an email from a ten year old girl named Jane Cooper. She asked me for permission to illustrate my flash fiction short story Santa Closet. Jane has a blog, The Vacation Called Life, where she writes stories and illustrates them. So I decided to check it out.

It is amazing. And wonderful. And hilarious. I laugh out loud every time I read one of her stories. They would be funny even without the illustrations, but her drawings make them twice as funny.

You may find it hard to believe you are reading the work of a ten year old, since she has a better grasp of the language than most high school graduates. But it’s true.

Check out Jane’s illustrated version of Santa Closet.

Here’s one of her illustrations:
